Living the Dream with Somizi is back for season five and Showmax released the trailer today (12 April). 


The production of Living the Dream with Somizi was paused due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This also gave the media personality some time to process his divorce from Mohale Motaung.

Somizi announced his divorce after Mohale accused him of physically and psychologically abusing him in leaked audio clips. Showmax says season five picks up the abuse allegations and the passing of his mom, veteran actress Mary Twala. 

Somizi is seen getting legal advice about a division of his assets and there is a hint that Mohale wants half. His friend, actress Lorcia Cooper also asks the Idols SA judge a burning question – “Did you hit him?”

The media personality’s daughter Bahumi Madisakwane Mhlongo also seems to feature heavily this season. She is seen asking to change her surname to her dad’s – Mhlongo.He is also seen on another “bestiecation” with singer Vusi Nova in Cape Town.

Candice Fangueiro, head of content at Showmax, says the platform is exploring everything that followed Somizi and Mohale’s wedding.

“His wedding special, Somizi & Mohale: The Union, was the union of the year and set a then-record for the most first-day views on Showmax at launch. Having told the story of the wedding, which appeared to many almost like a fairytale, for balance we wanted to explore everything that followed,” she said.
